Tarot #22: Gain, winning the game


The terrible, cold, cruel part [of New York] is Wall Street. Rivers of gold flow there from all over the earth, and death comes with it. There, as nowhere else, you feel a total absence of the spirit: herds of men who cannot count past three, herds more who cannot get past six, scorn for pure science and demoniacal respect for the present. And the terrible thing is that the crowd that fills this street believes that the world will always be the same, and that it is their duty to keep that huge machine running, day and night, forever…

Playing the game only for material reasons, all proceeds as planned for you. You get what you wanted. On its own the card represents winning whatever game you are playing or acquisition of abundance through focus and good fortune  or denotes the process of acquisition that will successfully lead to personal abundance or the material goals.

Sometimes you must focus on gain in order to provide enough material goods to survive during times in which you are engaged in more fulfilling work. When gain becomes your only measure of worth then you have stolen from yourself and all those you come into contact with for you are taking without returning sustenance to the system that nurtures you. You are gaining only material and all the hoarding of such treasures makes an empty prison of a full house.
